Solved 3 questions, non related,Breadcrumbs Module, Gif questions, ?!?Footer at the top?!?

Post by Mace Hathaway January 15th 2024, 5:20 am

3 questions pertaining to custom code.
Hope I have not posted this in the wrong place.
here goes.


Wondering if anyone has written custom code to do any of these things:

..1...display the breadcrumbs from the individual forums....
Or if the breadcrumbs exist already in my admin somewhere, & are shareable?
I would love to display a module that would help for navigation.

..2..is there a way to insert animated gifs into the main forum header img??..or possibly into the Forum category main img's???
I've been able to use gifs on the widget modules...no luck in forum or main


...3..crazy one, but, maybe display my footer widgets first and my forum second???...so maybe simply display the forum in reverse order?
Wouldn't want to do this always, but on occasion it would be nice to have a larger display of a featured widget, first thing when someone logs in.
...OR...can I set up a separate page that can ONLY display the footer widgets,(NO FORUM) and using redirects make my forum main page redirect to that default page first?

sorry If I've posted in the wrong place.
I have many questions, just not sure WHERE to post them and not break the rules.


Thanks in advance for any info.
-Mace

hello

number 1
please post your forum url and forum version

number 2
go to admin panel...general...categories choose the forum you want click the yellow gear icon to modify it a paste this code as the forum name ...just replace the image link and the forum name with your own information

Code:
<img src='IMAGE LINK' /><div>FORUM NAME</div>

number 3
do you mean a widget like this on top ? https://keeponblogging.forumgreek.com/

if you want to put the widgets on a separate page go to admin panel...modules..portal
and create a new page ..name it and click then structure to insert as many widgets as you like

you can also put this new page that works as a second portal as the default page
or add it as a link page to your navigation bar ( from admin panel...display...homepage...headers...add a customized menu.. the redirection link will be the new page you created )

Coucou

could you share your forum address? Wink

What is your forum version? also, do you want the breadcrumb to be in a widget, or just on top of the page content (as it normally happens) ?

Mace Hathaway wrote:..2..is there a way to insert animated gifs into the main forum header img??..or possibly into the Forum category main img's???
I've been able to use gifs on the widget modules...no luck in forum or main
a GIF is simply an image in a
Code:
.gif
format instead of
Code:
.png / .jpg
- so sure you can use the gif image for the forum header or else. It is just a regular image in another format Mr. Green

skouliki...thanks!

"if you want to put the widgets on a separate page go to admin panel...modules..portal

https://caboodlz.forumotion.com/portal?pid=3
I was able to build another portal page,(thank you!) can I rename it now, or does it have to retain this name? portal?pid=3


also
how it looks now?

I've disabled the center column(zero setting)
and set left and right columns at 50 each, but the display shows only ONE column now, looks ok, but it's not quite what I was thinking, I was hoping to display TWO columns...? quickfix?

Also now to further complicate I'm hoping to disable the remaining footer widgets on ONLY that portal page?
I know how to disable them otherwise, in modules and was hoping they would not show when I'm displaying the FEATURED page, but show up on all other pages? Disabling these in modules removes them from all others as well. J
Just don't see anywhere in PORTAL MNG that will allow me to diable the OTHER footers?

NOW,HOW DO I REDIRECT?
I've chosen my new page as the portal default


portal links are properly defaulting to my new page...success!
 I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set that new portal as my default page though?? so when folks type in my actual domain, http://www.caboodlz.com it points to this new portal...https://caboodlz.forumotion.com/portal?pid=3

I'm hoping to toggle back and forth with this new portal page & my actual home page on occasion, so I need to figure out exactly where that setting is.

Thanks again for the help.

1.  I have a little confuse by this.   Do you mean share them somewhere else?

P.S.  I was not giving an official warning.  I just wanted you to read them since you seem not to know them.

Post by skouliki January 16th 2024, 7:41 am

here is a tutorial about portal https://help.forumotion.com/t10575-the-portal?highlight=portal
if you make changes to the new portal then the default portal will not be affected you can customize each portal separately


I was hoping to display TWO columns...? quickfix?
to have 2 columns choose those settings
Width column 1 (left) :50%
Width column 2 (middle) :0%
Width column 3 (right) :50%


set that new portal as my default page
after you set the new page as the default portal go to admin panel ...display...homepage...Generalities...choose portal
Your forum address leads to :The portal

can I rename it now, or does it have to retain this name? portal?pid=3
only if you preview the page looks like this ... if you click it from the navigations link you do not have that extension..
https://caboodlz.forumotion.com/portal

to disable the remaining footer widgets on ONLY that portal page?
for the footer widgets you have these options only if you go to admin panel ...modules...Footer widgets management
Enable footer widgets : All pages ....Forum index and portal.... Disabled



note 1: yes you must use the default text no bold no color and it is preferable not to double-post
note 2: can you please verify that your forum version is phpBB2 cause i think it is ModernBB
from admin panel...display...choose a theme...version

about number 1 breadcrumbs

if iam right and your forum is indeed ModernBB you must look into your templates if you have this path
if you do not have it... you must add it
if you have part of it ..you must replace it with the below also

Code:
<div class="sub-header-path">
         <a class="nav" href="{U_INDEX}"><span>{L_INDEX}</span></a>
         {NAV_CAT_DESC}
      </div>

so you must look into 2 templates
admin panel...display....templates..general

1. viewforum_body
search for the word path must be approximately in line 8
so the result must be like the image after you have added the code above ...pay attention not to delete or add any divs

save and publish ....very important after saving to publish the template in order for the change to appear

2.viewtopic_body
do the same procedure search for the word path must be approximately in line 63
add the code save and publish

result

SO....I believe I owe you an apology...again...it appears that what I'm wanting is NOT the breadcrumbs....they do exist on my forum with each category...not knowing my terminology is a fuss, sorry.

What I'm actually looking for is a 'SITEMAP'...not breadcrumbs
I've just come to this realization after viewing another example. I'm sorry I went on a bit of a wild goose chase...they are similar, but very different.

So...Is there a sitemap that I can easily grab?...or do I have to create it?

Hello,
There is a very generic sitemap that is mainly intended for use by search engine bots, but it does exist and can be found by adding /sitemap.xml to the end of any forum url.

The url to your sitemap is: https://caboodlz.forumotion.com/sitemap.xml

i don't think you want a sitemap either cause the sitemap is what Brandon posted above i think you want something like this

this form option already exists in your forum

version:    modernbb        site:   caboodlz.com/forumotion.com     caboodlz.com

I've marked this solved my friends....it was a bit of a snafu post, I apologize. 
Though I was highly confused, Your advice STILL pointed me in the right direction.

I was needing the navigational help(or so I thought), sitemap/breadcrumbs etc,...because I was wanting to set up the classified ads section, and I was hoping to tie all my categories together.
Upon further investigation I found that the classified ad section had built in what was suggested above...now I have my first couple of adds up, running the test so that my users will have a flawless experience.

Still learning how the adds section works, but I'm getting there...read a couple threads from back when the ad's widget was first introduced in 2016...learned a bunch.

now I'm just Trying to wrap my head around the functionality of the LISTINGS  page for my users,( currently my second portal page} to make it easier to find and use...

After I figured out that the ads widget can be added to any forum, it was no problem to connect the LISTINGS to the Categories...the drop down menu's do the job.

My Ad widget is working properly and I've been able to deposit it into multiple destinations without trouble....Success!! thank you for the input.

The only thing I was still trying to do, and I know this will have to go into the CSS, is I was kind of hoping I could turn the "NEW TOPIC" button(the one that would normally appear in forums, and also appears in adds) into a "LIST YOUR ITEM" button when folks are viewing the ad's pages...or viewing my listings page.??  http://www.gearhoardio.com , which is my other domain that points to this forum sub domain...I also understand the code may not permit it, and it may be an all or nothing type situation where I can only get one text item per element to work, and no ALT text for other pages.

I know this was not my original question...and I do not wish to break rules with a run-on-sentence approach one question becomes another becomes another.......I understand if this last question maybe needs to be moved somewhere to keep it alive, esp since I marked it solved.

Thanks again for all your help folks, I'm learning a ton, and having fun doing it. I'd still be scratching my head without y'all.

It's no problem, the only reason we ask people to create one topic for each issue is simply so that anyone who has the problem in the future might be able to find the post using the search bar. But it's not the type of rule we typically give reminders for or anything Wink.

Anyway I am glad you figured out your original issues. It would be best to make a new topic for the other question you had. Wink
